Earlier this month a full house gathered for Sustainable Wellesley’s Taste the Future event at Jarvis Appliances where we sampled delicious food and clean wine, watched cooking demos on an induction stove, and learned more about the ways to move off of dangerous gas appliances.

Huge thanks to Wellesley Public Media for covering the event. For those that missed it or want to learn more, watch it here.

Zeyneb Magavi and Audrey Schulman of HEET shared ways to transition to clean energy. Their eye opening presentation about the dangers of gas was coupled with opportunities EVERYONE can do to make a healthy change for the future.

We are very grateful to Wellesley’s finest at Jarvis Appliances, Chef Kurt and Janine Malone for making it a FUN evening.

Chef Kurt created a delicious meal — you can see him using and explaining induction stoves at his You Tube Channel here. Plus, we had the opportunity to sample Scout & Cellar’s clean crafted, hand picked, small family vineyard wines. Not only were they delicious but organic and biodynamic, vegan and bottled consciously, no chemicals or added sugar. Click here for more information on getting your hands on some.

The Rotary Club of Wellesley wants to add REPAIR to the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) program by announcing its second Repair Café Event. It will be held on Saturday April 7th, from 9:00 AM to Noon, at the Warren Center.

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). At the Repair Café event, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make most repairs. Repairs can be made on clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera. You’ll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields.

Visitors bring their broken items from home. Together with the specialists they start making their repairs in the Repair Café. It’s an ongoing learning process. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table – by leafing through books on repairs and DIY.

There are over 1,300 Repair Cafés worldwide.

Please register as a guest in advance to attend the Café. List the item you want to repair. If you have questions, feel free to contact John Adams at johnfadamsjr51@gmail.com or 617-817-0314. Connecting with him before the event, enables the Rotary Club to make sure they have the necessary parts for repair available.

If you have repair skills and want to help out, please register as a volunteer.
